Kristina Bilonick photo by Dayna Smith for the Washington PostClick HERE to read about Kristina Bilonick's prints and clothing. Kristina has been with the Washington Glass School since its beginning, as both artist and instructor. Her work as Program Director (more than a 'party planner' as the Post describes her) for the arts organization Washington Project for the Arts has really put DC area artists into the spotlight - it is nice to see some well-deserved attention come back on her!
